    Ansel Adams did that with an 8x10. All it took (to oversimplify) was a light source and a way to keep stray light from leaking out. The setup is in his books. He set the camera/enlarger on a bench and used that. The catch is, do you have enough bellows. If you do, you're in business. If not, you have to use a shorter lens and hope it covers.

    If you do buy it, another option is to take it to any local camera shows or swap meets. It is amazing the stuff you can buy or trade for.

    Dave, if you Google Search "Seneca camera Co." there is a site that has pictures and histories of all the Seneca cameras. The site also has info and links on many other companies that manufactured early view cameras
